♫♪  Your Old Droog - It Wasn’t Even Close

Your Old Droog dropped It Wasn’t Even Close two weeks ago, and I haven’t been the same since. First of all, it came out of nowhere; no lead up; no tease; just a smack to the face. Second, it fucking knocks. His lyricism has taken a leap into some sort of next level shit. He, I’m sure, would contest this… “Always been this nice, my dude.” Which is true, but It Wasn’t Even Close feels like it’s on some God tier shit. Like, I really haven’t listened to anything else since it came out.

And don’t even get me started on the production:

Tracks 1, 9, 10, 12, 13 - Sadhu Gold
Track 2 - V Don
Track 3 - Theravada
Track 4 - Daringer
Track 5 - Evidence
Track 6 - Tha God Fahim
Track 7 - Nephew Hesh
Track 8 - Mono En Stereo
Track 11 - Ohbliv

Then, there’s the features: DOOM, Mach-Hommy, Lil Ugly Mane, Wiki, and Roc Marciano. Yeesh.

Soon to be released on vinyl and cassette (pre-order here), you can stream the album below while you wait for your copy to show up.
